Comment(s).

¹. “The name garnet does not refer to a single gemstone but rather a group of minerals which share similar chemical compositions and crystallise in the same system. The most commonly encountered are the reddish-brown stone, which although not rare can be very beautiful. The best examples, coloured red by chromium, are known as pyrope, and approximate the colour of ruby” (David Bennet and Daniela Mascetti 'Understanding Jewellery', 1989). “The term pyrope is derived from the Greek word πup, meaning ‘fire’, and Όπtouxi, meaning, ‘I see’. Varying in colour from slightly orangey-red to red, and on to violet-red as the iron from the almandine alters the hue position, pyrope can exhibit a very striking, bright fiery hue” (John D. Rouse, ‘Garnet’, 1986).
